that you recognize? He is a professor
of sociology at Eastern University, and
and evangelist. One of the deep joys
of my life was seeing him live, seeing
him preach, and watching what an
anointed evangelist can be an instrument
to; as hundreds of people responded
to his invitation to become sacrificial.
Spend three minutes and have your
eyes opened into a new and wider
vista of what it means to follow Jesus-
my feeling is you'll find it worthwhile.

Thick of it?
Too often we don't really hear
what folks are saying. Right now
many people are feeling the sense
of dread around, a sense of unease
with how things are. People are not
stupid, on the contrary, people are
smart, people know instinctively
that there are safety in numbers,
that's why we hang out together.
Ever notice that, when we want
to feel a sense of safety being
added to something, we want
some folks around us?
So when George Clooney, a well known star, maybe, one of the most well known stars in all of history- certainly he's recognizable in that category- makes a statement like he made in this ad, it has to make you wonder, do we really know what's going on?
WHAT'S THIS HAVE TO DO WITH JESUS?
Fair question- let's examine what is taking place as we watch. The changes that are taking place in America aren't happening behind doors in smoke filled rooms, they are taking place right out in the big vast open- with ads like this one (George Clooney ...above), and others. Television time on speeches, and coverage of certain news worthy events. NOW- that's powerful stuff, and if you track
it down, guess what- things are changing
Do you believe you really have freedom
of expression, anymore, in the U.S.? You
have limited freedom of expression, and
that freedom of expression is limited by
the local laws prohibiting certain sorts
of free speech. I know you don't believe
me- so, try it yourself, try saying something
out loud where it's not wanted, about the
Bible, or God, or Jesus, just out loud-
where it might interfere with someone
peaceably buying something from
the local Wal-Mart- see how long it
takes before you are told you cannot
express "that." Freedom of expression-
sure- at one time- but not anymore.
SO- WHAT ARE YOU ASKIN' ME TO DO?
You won't find Dana asking you to do
anything, but if you read what He says-
you may find someone you claim you
believe in, asking you to be bolder than
you believe you can be, for all the right

Step 1: Identify what is real, what you need, and what is - clutter.
Step 2: Write it down.
Step 3: Throw the list away - it's not going to do you any good -
you won't get rid of the clutter - if you were going to do that-
you wouldn't have clutter in your life to begin with!
Wanna go for it again? Nah...wouldn't that be...
cluttering up your life?
Until you leave a comment...I'm thinking of you...Love - DrD
